Images of St. George’s Orthodox Christian Church

The Board Members of the Center for Interfaith Cooperation met at the recently completed beautiful Saint George Orthodox Christian Church in Fishers, Indiana. The regular meeting ended with a tour of the Church led by V. Rev. Father Nabil Hanna, Pastor and a fellow CIC Board Member. We felt we were transported to a medieval sacred space with beautiful murals and design elements that embellished the church architecture.

The Church in Indiana is “a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North American. There are 300 million Orthodox Christians worldwide and nearly five million in North America.”… “Founded in 1926, many parishioners are descendents of Syrian and Lebanese immigrants who brought their faith from the birthplace of Christianity.” There are icons of Christ, Mother Mary, and Saints everywhere – across the central dome and arches, other fascinating design and decorative details. The architecturally distinct structure, with a central dome and bell tower, is patterned after another church in California designed by the same architect.
